An octopus wants to put his boy to bed, in all of the wrong ways. First he offers to draw him a bath, and when the boy thanks him, he reveals that it is a bath of egg salad! Other tricks include helping him dry off with a tuba, and put his PJ’s on…The Statue of Liberty! I love that they boy always says thank you. This book is full of zany juxtapositions. Kids will love to point out how silly and of course how wrong you are! They will also laugh at the fun illustrations. This one will be great for story time.
